After having been freaked out by the sight of my dog with a dead animal in its mouth, I accidentally put about 18 oz of algaecide in my pool instead of muriatic acid. Problem is I had added about 22 oz of algaecide yesterday as a preventive dose. (My pool company had added algaecide when I opened my pool on 4/29 and I have not had any problems. Yesterday is the first time I added algaecide myself.) Earlier today, I added about 66 oz of 8.3% bleach to get chlorine levels up. After I lowering the pH with the muriatic acid, I had planned to add about 4 pounds of CYA because my chlorine seems to be burning off more quickly now that it has gotten sunnier/warmer.
Will the extra algaecide cause any harm? Do I have to wait to add muriatic acid? If so, how long? How long after adding muriatic acid can I add the CYA (plan to put it in a sock in the skimmer). How long after adding CYA can we swim? Does the CYA need to be fully dissolved before we swim?
Sorry for all the questions. I thought I was getting the hang of this.
